Employee Assistance Program

The STAH Program makes an excellent choice as an Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

EAP’s are a critical step for job retention. Life challenges affect everyone differently which can be identified and sustainably resolved in the workplace.

Providing support can be cheaper than replacing a valuable team member. Advertising, training, and time before peak performance is costly versus retaining a skilled employee.

Psychological Injuries cost on average three times more in claims and time off work.

The STAH Program can make a significant difference to reduce costs with positive return to work outcomes.

Morale and workplace culture are bolstered with a Drug and Alcohol Management Plan (DAMP). 

EAP’s are a critical step in a DAMP. STAH Group provides a comprehensive DAMP and promotes EAP’s to foster employability and benefit the community.

Screening On Site is our Drug and Alcohol (D&A) testing division protecting all stakeholders.

STAH Program Overview

Willing participants undergo a transformational change.

A Strategy Session is conducted to ensure commitment and understanding for the best outcome.

A Personal Development Plan is tailored to the needs of each individual.

Personal assessments are conducted to identify Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scores (DASS) ratings throughout the program. 

Personal Development Plans provide the steps needed to initiate the STAH Program. 

Pre-program sessions can be delivered to prepare individuals.

Stage I

First, we identify communication attributes to grow understanding and acceptance of one’s self. This key step strengthens communication skills, educates participants on how to communicate with others, improves confidence, builds self-worth and facilitates effective relationships.

Stage II

The core of the STAH Program. One on one sessions are booked with our experienced and skilled practitioners. DASS is measured throughout the sessions to identify improvement. Confidential sessions identify issues affecting participants and then empower them to become Victors of their circumstances.

Previous trigger points causing negative behavioural patterns are dealt with to no longer pose problems. Confidence, self-belief, and a positive future is then the focus.

This process is conducted over 4-6-weeks. Our practitioners are adaptable to the needs and rate of transformational change for participants. The DASS coupled with feedback is our measurement of success.

Follow up contact is maintained over three months to evaluate and substantiate success. If an area of need is identified, a session plan is implemented to maintain the successful path participants are on.

The relationship between participant and practitioner is vital and we keep an open channel for support.

Stage III

Personal Development, specific psychometric analysis used to measure personal strengths and traits of an individual.

Participants can then identify the education, professional development and career paths best suited to them.

Focussed and armed with a guide to success, tailored to one’s abilities, promotes job retention and job satisfaction which in turn creates a happier, higher achiever creating higher job productivity and participation.

Stage IV

To complete our sustainable solution for mental health and wellbeing the STAH Program can provide a budgeting program. Individuals who may have been struggling to manage their finances in the past are now skilled and focussed. A budgeting plan helps reduce the stress of managing funds, so they are in control of their income and future.

The STAH Program is designed to suit the needs of individuals or organisations.

Stand-Out Results

The STAH Program’s skilled practitioners have been achieving excellent results averaging 90% successful outcomes.

We measure outcomes with the industry standard Depression Anxiety Stress Score (DASS) coupled with the feedback from participants.

A successful outcome is determined when DASS ratings are seen at the normal day to day operating levels as per the tables and a participants assessment showing their personal conditions which were the reason for joining the STAH Program are no longer causing issues with their ability to perform or live contended lives.

The graphs shown here are the DASS rating for participants who are only two sessions into the Program.  Their initial rating pre-program is in Blue and after just two sessions the orange shows the immediate benefits and new rating.

This clearly shows how quickly serious issues can be dealt with giving participants the ability to embrace life, their future and move forward with confidence.
